reFRACTion: A Performance Piece Exploring the Reflection of the Psyche’s Inner Turmoil through Movement and Poetry
Growing up, I was always creative and outgoing. I wanted to be a part of everything. Because of this, I was able to experience and cultivate multiple passions. When it was time to create my Honors Thesis, I was excited to combine my learned loves of writing, movement, music, and learning. During my college career, I’ve learned more about how my brain works and where motivation and work ethic stems from. I love being involved in a myriad of things at once, but this did create internal stress and conflict. In order to create this piece, I was forced to consider all the aspects of my thinking and metacognition, which is from where the concept for this piece ultimately stems.
